Psalm 9: 1-2 & 7-10
I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
2 I will be glad and rejoice in you;
I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.
The Lord reigns forever;
he has established his throne for judgment.
8 He rules the world in righteousness
and judges the peoples with equity.
9 The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.
10 Those who know your name trust in you,
for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.
As the weekend begins, let's rest ourselves in praise. Let our hearts be full of thanksgiving. Let our mouths shout out our exultation.
God is enthroned, established, trustworthy and the righteous judge. We can trust in Him. We know God's name and we are not forsaken... ever!
You, Lord our God, you are worthy of our praise. We exult your Holy Name. For Jesus' sake. Amen.
